As a landmark exhibition tracing Swarovski’s long history in Haute Coutre opens in Paris, Nadja Swarovski speaks to Imran Amed about the design-led vision that she has been advocating for her family business, founded in 1895 by her great-great-grandfather.
Nadja Swarovski is a woman on the go. Having recently been elevated to member of the executive board of Swarovski, she is constantly shuttling between her home in London, Swarovski’s headquarters in Wattens, Austria, and countless other places around the world.

This is a complex, global concern.

These notable houses would only enlist a most proficient jeweler to uphold their reputation, bien sûr! But Lorenz Bäumer has his own great name and salon also, where he described to me in a recent interview the commonality he shares with Louis Vuitton, his most poetically expressed inspirations, and the one “erotic object” he finds amusing.
